Ron Meador It is likely that many people alive today will see the end of the Arctic as we know it. The vast expanses of summer sea ice trod by polar bears, the pods of narwhals coursing by, the day-long herds of caribou crossing the tundra, all are threatened by current and future climate change. This change will have an impact on life in the Arctic, and in the rest of the world. This is the stark conclusion from the most complete assessment of Arctic climate in six…

More than 3,000 wells, which produce around 13,000 net barrels of oil a day, will be closed until the company’s “field personnel…

Whether this will also be possible in the natural habitat depends on the degree of change in environmental conditions, researchers from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel argue in a publication in the journal Frontiers in Marine…

By Jake Ellison20 April 2017 (Seattle PI) – Whether humans, especially those living in America, will do anything to reduce global warming and salvage some of the world's ice — as well as keep the oceans cooler so they don't swell too darn much — remains to be seen.

Coastal cities are already drawing up plans to mitigate higher sea levels, but a …
